In absolute awe of children's art!

The last month has been a wonderful journey with an amazing group of elementary students who have taught me so much about being loose, imaginative and joyful about creating..the class was titled Art in a box..and featured 4 mixed media projects..from altered books, journals to assemblage..

assemblage.. student art in box!

It has been so wonderful watching art evolve in this class over last 4 sessions..so free..liberating ..such natural artists at work!

art class ..jewels of creativity
